Upcycle Old Shirts Into T-shirt Yarn Baskets

Old T-shirts aren't only good as garage rags, you know. Turn them into continuous pieces of yarn that you can then crochet into T-shirt Yarn Baskets! These little baskets and containers are made using T-shirt yarn. The yarn is sturdy and soft. I have been using these for my house, too. These little creations are great for bathroom storage, desk organization,  and nursery room organization.

Garage rags are handy, but T-Shirt Yarn Baskets are functional and adorable!

Editor's note: We are not responsible for any "favorite" old shirts cut up for this excellent idea!

Three shirts make one medium-sized basket!
These containers are soft and machine-washable! Perfect for use in your kid's room!
Roll the edges down or not! The baskets look great either way.
This project makes exceptional catch-all containers and adds a custom touch to your hobby room or office.
These little containers are great for the kitchen too!
This project allows you to size the baskets to the space you have!  
Create round, square, or rectangular containers for any room of the house!
Turn your bathroom into a spa experience with eye-pleasing shapes and colors!
Some of my finished baskets!

Here's a YouTube video by UpcycledStuff that demonstrates how to make a continuous piece of "yarn" out of an upcycled T-shirt.

I did this with my fathers old ratty t-shirts after he passed away. Gave it to my sister who uses it as a beach bag.
